Re: USMNT: The March to Brazil - World Cup 2014
I think we have pretty good depth of "good," and have been making the most of what we have for awhile now. It's the absence of "great" that might be holding us back from the next step. We can point to several guys who can play with the best, but that very top shelf -- the one where you find stars, or at least guys good enough to be lineup fixtures for teams that expect to make the Champions League across the pond -- is pretty empty. Sometimes it seems like we're just one or two players away. Then again, like M2 said, the top-shelf talent is pretty concentrated and once outside the top eight or so, those teams usually aren't full of stars either.
Not all who wander are lost
